hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and attractions.
Free Lifetime Map Updates: The Garmin nuvi 1350-LMT includes

of the Garmin GPS unit. You can activate your free lifetime map updates
service at www.mygarmin.com and download

up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made
available on the Garmin website, for this specific Garmin product only until

mark and name any map position as a waypoint for later recall. Up to 1000
waypoints can be saved into memory.
When indoors, you can activate the built-in simulator and practice using the
unit. This turns off the GPS receiver so it's not searching for satellites.
Tools: The nuvi 1350-LMT offers several tools you can use as you travel:
- World Clock: The world
clock allows you to display the current time for four locations throughout
the world. You can also display a map of the world showing which portions

your home or office). Every time the nuvi 1350-LMT is powered on, you must enter the
PIN, or drive to your security location.
FM Traffic: The nuvi 1350-LMT can receive traffic information
broadcast over the FM Radio Data System (RDS), when connected to the supplied
Garmin GTM 25 FM TMC (Traffic Message Channel) receiver. When you are in a
coverage area, the traffic delays are rated by severity with color-coded icons.
If you encounter severe traffic along your route, the unit will automatically
recalculate the route for you to avoid traffic delays. The nuvi 1350-LMT includes a
product lifetime subscription to NAVTEQ Traffic. Traffic information is
available in approximately 50 North American cities.
Note: Free Lifetime Traffic Updates may not be
transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic
extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you
own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from
its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available
for all areas.
Coupons: Location-relevant offers and pop-up coupons may appear on the
unit when the traffic receiver is connected to external power. These offers

The image files must be stored on
an optional microSD memory card or transferred to the internal memory.
Photo Navigation: The Panoramio (www.panoramio.com) website provides photographs that include
location information called geotags. These photos can be downloaded into the
nuvi 1350-LMT or microSD memory card, and the unit can route you to the location.
Mounting: The unit
should be securely installed when used in a vehicle. The unit comes with a
mounting bracket that includes a suction cup. The suction cup can be used to
mount the unit to the windshield. Once the nuvi 1350-LMT is mounted, it can be adjusted on the ball-and-socket
bracket for best visibility. The unit must be installed where it has a
relatively unobstructed view of the sky.

after a 4-hour charge. Stored data, such as waypoints or unit settings,
are not lost when the unit is disconnected from a power source.

comes with an internal memory for storage of supplemental
maps and photos. When the unit is connected to your
computer, the nuvi 1350-LMT is recognized as a USB Mass Storage device.
